There is a old saying that you shouldn’t ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’ and it applies to a situation where you do not have to destroy something simply to fix a small problem which exists. This is a saying which can most certainly be applied to property remodeling and very often we see people look to carry out a full remodeling project when in reality a couple of tweaks and changes would have been enough to entirely reimagine somewhere.
When it comes to the bathroom, this is certainly the case and you most certainly don’t have to tear the place up in order to beautify the space, even if you have a small bathroom. Here then are a few ideas which you could try in order to give your bathroom a new lease of life.
Contrary to what you may believe, lighting is not just about illuminating a space, it also sets the mood and adds a touch of style and elegance. There are many sleek lighting designs which you could consider that will really change the entire feel of your bathroom. Being small there is a sense of it being a hidden away place to relax, and the lighting should reflect that. Check out Clearlight Designs for some great options such as spotlights that modernize the bathroom or lantern-style lamps to give a more aquatic feel.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Whilst having a small bathroom may feel quaint, it will certainly benefit from having mirrors in there which are able to give that sense of amplifying the space. The trick here will be to carefully place the mirrors and instead of having a simple vanity mirror, look to install a long horizontal mirror that will add both style and a sense of added space.
Taps and Details
Something as simple as adding new taps and touches will make a huge difference to the style and the feel of the bathroom. The key here is not just getting the right taps for the sink, but to replicate those colors and patterns throughout the bathroom. If you have a pull cord then you can add a sleek handle to it in the same style as the taps, you could also look to add closet knobs which also feature the style of the taps. This is inexpensive, effortless and it makes an enormous difference in the bathroom.
If you have tiles and you wish to change them then don’t worry about taking them off the wall and buying new ones, as you can paint them instead. Painting tiles is a very simple process and the ceramic really takes the paint well. This will give you bathroom an entirely new lease of life and you can even add some personal design touches to a few of the tiles. Tile paint isn’t exactly cheap, but it is significantly cheaper than if you were to rip off those tiles and put new ones up.
Simple tricks which can give you bathroom a makeover, without the hassle and cost of a remodel.
